KATHLEEN - The road to a GHSA softball state championship begins on Wednesday as the playoffs get under way on the softball diamond.
One of the teams vying for a crown in Quad A action are the Veteran Lady Warhawks. Led by head coach Mitch Horton, the red, white and blue are 25-7-1. Last week, the Hawks laid claim to a region 2A championship over Rutland.
Coach Horton says, after starting out 3 years ago with a 9-23 record, his team is ready to make a statement in the post season, as the program continues to build.
"They really wanted that region championship these past few days in the tournament", says Horton. "They really turned it on and really fought hard through that. Hopefully now our expectations are to get some wins in the state playoffs. Advance to the first and second round, go on to the elite eight and see what we can do there."
Game time is Wednesday afternoon at 5pm as they host Dutchtown. Game two will follow.
